Hi, following the problem described previously
bu353, netbook acer aspire one, windows 7 starter)
Attached is a logfile in case someone can find something in there.
I have edited the file to keep the logs
of two OpenCPN
runs that ended with no more communication with the gps receiver. (I had to end opencpn
by killing it with the process manager).
Except for the fact that there's no clean exit logged, I'm not able to see a hint in there.
One line say's :
USB Driver." although the gps connected is not the garmin
(I also have a garmin gps and mapsource installed).
I'm presently trying the following solution:
1-connect the gps (bu353) and use GpsGate as the main gps data receiver.
2-let GpsGate create a virtual com port for sharing the gps data.
3-Connect OpenCPN to this virtual com port instead of the real one.
I started OpenCPN 6 hours ago with this configuration and everything still working fine.
Hope this can be a workaround for now.
More on this test soon.
